A day exploring Cork

English Market Cork - Pikalily

Last year we set of travelling around parts of Ireland with Expedia as part of an #ExpediaExplores project.  Having visited Derry, our next stop was the very south of Ireland and county Cork.  Anyone who has travelled from Down to Cork will appreciate how long the journey is and it took us just over 5 hours to get to our hotel.  We stayed in the Ambassador Hotel which is a few minutes outside the city centre and although we’ve certainly stayed in better hotels, it ticked all the boxes we needed – good food, close to city centre and ample parking.  We arrived pretty late at night so it was a case of getting in and grabbing some dinner before hitting the sack as we knew we had a busy day ahead of us.
